Loving the bar charts: H4, M5 (scale fixed), M1.

Imagine a P&F chart and trade the horizontal lines.

The H4 is spaced to 5% of the weekly range and the charts to the right are 2.5%.

Risk is 1.0551% over 3.5 lines and size is continually increased by a third until the decision is made to take profit.

Yes due to the binary nature of trading. Up/Down, profit/loss, win/lose, etc...

It is easy to see but difficult to explain, TRO.

Simply be more selective with which horizontal lines you trade; try and get in on a larger
idea rather than trading every possible trigger.

I use a 3.5 line stop loss:

if line #24 is touched then my stop is at 24.5 and I can short 23, 22, or 21.
If line #25 then my stop is 25.5 and I can short 24, 23, or 22.
Price makes a BI to 21, stop at 21.5,...
If price makes a BI to 22+ then stop might go to 25.5.
It is the idea that one simply enters within the space of acceptable risk.

What indicator are you using to draw your levels?

I use the EIGHTSv4 indicator.

EDIT: Lines spaced to 2.5% of the median weekly range is what I define as "short term" trading.

Hey MO,

When you add, what's the math for adjusting stop space if you not doubling? Or are you only doubling to KIS?
